Angela’s Pasta and Cheese Shop - Manchester, NH
Owner: Steve Freeman
Angela’s Pasta and Cheese Shop has long been a Manchester, NH institution, offering fresh pastas, local pastries and imported cheese and wine for almost 40 years. So when new owner Steve Freeman took over the business in July 2020, he knew his plan was to build upon the foundation that already existed.
Over the last several months, Steve and the team at Angela’s have worked to do just that, seeking to have a positive impact on the community. One way they’ve tried to make a difference: by reducing the amount of waste they send to the landfill. This time last year, they were filling a three-yard dumpster three times a week. But after reevaluating packaging and disposal practices and adding a dedicated cardboard recycling dumpster, they have been able to start emptying the dumpster less than once a week.
Going forward, Angela’s will continue its commitment to making the community stronger and being the place where shoppers can find unique speciality products not carried at larger grocery stores.
